Bladerunner

Sam Gilbey has been exploring a looser dry brush style in contrast to his more detailed and realistic digital painting we are more familiar with. As a result we've been the recipients of 4 lively Blade Runner portraits. Thank you Sam we love the immediacy of these and how successfully you capture the light and shade.

Consciousness

Richard Wilkinson has produced two illustrations for the cover of The New Scientist. This alternate illustration was produced for an issue about how scientists have found a new way to test for consciousness and have since found evidence of it in nearly all animals - including insects and molluscs. So we better think twice when swatting away mosquitoes from now on! See the final cover illustration in his portfolio

Bonnie Be Bad!

David De Les Heras has wowed us all in his first commission with CIA For an article in Scotland in Trust. David was asked to subtly depict the Bonnie Prince Charlie and his darker side – domestic abuse, financial problems, infidelity and political shenanigans. With a clever colour palette and an arrogant expression, we think he's done an extremly good job.

Robotics

Maria Raymonsdotter has simplified her bold playful charcters to some serious success for an article about artificial intelligence and robotics for The Fincancial Times, "Can a robot do your job?” We don't want to find out how much of our job can technically be automated...we like it just the way it is.

Can't Fight The Moonlight

The very personal story of conflicted masculinity and self-love in Moonlight is a great reminder that cinema can be a profound human experience, Sam Gilbey's cinematic portrait sensitively depicts the lead character and it's already been circulating the realms of the internet and had kudos from the official Moonlight pages. Commissioned by British Airways for 'Highlife Magazine'. Bravo Sam!
